    Senate Bill 5

    If some of you have not noticed Ohio's current state senate has introduced a bill that will effectively end collective bargaining as we know it in OH. This bill will result in less pay, benefits and rights that many of us have fought hard for. We need everyone's help. This is a very serious concern for current and Future OH Firefighters. Please take the time to find out who your local state senator and state representative are and send them a letter (e-mail) and a phone call to their state office telling them you oppose this bill. Please be professional. Insults and name calling will not help our cause. For more info please go to www.oapff.com.

    nothing man. I talked to one of my buddies I went to medic school with. He said he was asked about one of us who were in medic school with him but not any of the other who applied who were in class with him. So...I don't know what's going on.

    CEMS is a civil service position. They have made calls to those who will be in the next academy asking for more documentation like certs etc. They want the new class to be out by the beginning of summer. The academy will be less para-military and focus more on ride time. Only paramedics will be hired this time. Academy consists of protocol, sops, city policies, and a handful of cert/recert classes. Even if your hopes are actually getting on CFD through the merger with EMS do not mention it, meaning fire, at the interview or any other time.

    yeah I agree. There are a butt load of medics in the NE ohio area

    I think it's just like SOP's and BLS, ACLS, PALS, PEPP ect. I was told no matter when you got those certs that they want the whole class on the same page for exp. date but I believe that you need to be a medic this time around for the class. It was all medics that took the "test"

    They don't really give a test. It's not a civil service position. They did have a test but it wasnt a civil service test it was a "see what you know" test. I just put an application in and got a call. They want to have a class of 30 out of the academy by the start of the summer and I'd say CEMS will have quite a few retiring that's just a guess but there are a lot of older guys on CEMS

    I did ask about the merger but got nothing except its "going to happen this year"

    why can't they just tell you what it'll be?
    During your interview, was there any mention of the merger with CFD or anything related to CFD?

    How often does Cleveland EMS hire? or how oten do they test is the better question.
